Alternate Routes: A Journal of Critical Social Research
Alternate Routes: A Journal of Critical Social Research is a scholarly, peer-reviewed journal published annually in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at Carleton University by a collaborative editorial committee consisting of faculty and graduate students. Established in 1977, AR has sought to provide an intellectual forum for engaging debate and interdisciplinary inquiry. In working closely with international scholars, labour organizers and social justice activists, the editorial emphasis is on the publication of non-traditional, provocative and radical analyses that may not find a forum in conventional academic or mainstream venues. AR seeks to cultivate a 'public' academic journal and encourages submissions that advance or challenge theoretical and contemporary issues related to political, economic and cultural processes that shape social interactions, as well as works dedicated to progressive political interventions.
